Aeronautical Engineering is the branch of engineering dealing with the study and the creation of advanced technologies in the field of aviation, defense systems, and space technology. Aeronautical Engineering includes study and design and the manufacture of the flight-capable machines or the techniques of operation of aircraft, through the application of physics, mathematics, and other disciplines. Aeronautical Engineers work on the maintenance of aircraft, specializing in the study in the effects of aircraft on the environment, and potential dangers of the new aircraft technologies or fuel-efficiency. The commercial aviation, defense systems, and space exploration and focus on the design oF aircraft systems(which is also known as avionics) or material research and selection.
For Diploma in Civil Engineering:
The admission process for Diploma in Civil Engineering generally varies across colleges. Most institutes offer direct admission on the basis of merit list from the academic performance.
For B.Tech in Civil Engineering:
Direct Admission: The admission process for the Civil Engineering in some engineering institutes have their own criteria for the admission. They either offer the admission basis of their respective merit list in the qualifying exam which is 10+2 or equivalent to that. Also, there are some seats reserved in private engineering colleges, while the fee structure is comparatively higher than the others.
Direct Admission for Diploma Holders: Various engineering colleges of the nation also offers direct admission. These are offered to the ITI diploma holders in the second year of the respective course.
Entrance Exams: There are also entrance exams in India at the respective states and the national level. Among which is the JEE Main which is the most sought for the engineering entrances.
For M.Tech in Civil Engineering:
The admission process generally consists of a written examination and an interview thereafter. Most institutes provide direct admission to candidates who have a relatively high percentage in academics in their 10, +2, and B.Tech. But, to apply for IITs, the candidate must have a valid GATE score.
